DSTL has a requirement to extend the Programme for a further 2 years from 1 Apr 2020, to be known as Phase 9, and a contract amendment is under construction accordingly. As a logical progression of the research activity already conducted, Dstl requires the consortium to focus on improving mission effectiveness and survivability in contested and degraded operational environments.
The consortium will concentrate on identifying and assessing relevant technologies, evaluate their military utility and understand the maturation of such technologies. This approach may include the application of advanced mission system technologies already demonstrated in previous phases where relevant. Phase 9 will also provide opportunities to continue research into specific advanced mission systems technologies as required by Dstl.
